When our favorite childhood things come back to into our lives we generally get quite excited. Toys? TV shows? Everything about Nickelodeon? All of those things are great, and reassure us that we are very sophisticated individuals indeed.
However, you can’t take any of those and drive them down the road to pick up the messages. However, you can take your favorite Little Tikes Car from days gone by out for a spin. If you’ve got a spare €22,000. But let’s not put a price on our childhood happiness.
Brothers John and Geoff Bitmead actually a made a real-life, life-sized version of the red and yellow car. The toy car is actually known as the “Little Tikes Cozy Coupe”, just FYI. The brother's version is called the “Crazy Coupe.”
For anyone who’s ever tried to squeeze their adult body into the toy car meant for children younger than 5, this is for you. For anyone who has ever re-painted their Smart Car and Fiat to look like the toy car, this is for you- yes, someone has actually tried to do that.
This is the real deal, and it’s already got “5,000 miles of genuine road use” according to the eBay listing.
“Apart from it not being the fastest car on the planet has been the most incredible fun with people queuing up to take photos along dual carriageways and highways on every trip. Guaranteed to create smiles wherever it goes!”
The interior appears to be all red and yellow, and it’s a manual drive. The car also only seats two, so you’re going to have to tell your friends to form an orderly queue.
The brothers also write that they’ve raised money for charity with the car, and “in the right hands could be quite [phenomenal].” When the car was first made in 2013, the BBC News even profiled it.
A working Cozy Coupe car, with the potential to bring happiness to everyone, great at charity events, and will guarantee you to be the envy of everyone else on the road?
Bidding is currently open on the car, good luck!
